Men's Health Program

Last Updated 10/22/2014 4:59:42 PM

Specialized Care Just for Men

The Men's Health Program at El Camino Hospital Los Gatos is a unique offering of comprehensive health services tailored to our male patients. The program was initiated with a focus on urology, but it has grown to encompass a broader range of care. Common problems, especially urological symptoms, can sometimes be related to other, more serious conditions, so it makes sense to take a holistic approach and look at a man’s total health.

Our Collaborative Approach to Comprehensive Care

In addition to urology issues, men have other health needs that may be impacted by gender. The human body is an intricate system and each function is reliant on another. Regular check-ups, maintenance, and inspections help keep you on the track to good health. We address concerns proactively and confidentially, drawing on a wide range of specialists experienced in men’s health for an effective, all-points inspection. We understand that men are often reluctant to visit a physician, so we take advantage of every visit to offer insightful, complete care.

The Men's Health Program offers a personal and confidential environment designed specifically for men, who are often reluctant to discuss sensitive issues in their physicians' offices.

Expertise in a Wide Range of Areas

This is where holistic care becomes a reality.

Disorders of the cardiovascular system can lead to issues elsewhere in the body, such as reduced blood flow. World-class experts and leading-edge treatments keep our cardiovascular program state-of-the-heart.

Ear, nose, and throat (ENT)
Dizziness, allergies, hearing loss - these modest issues can have a profound impact on men’s health, so we assess them carefully and completely.

Gastroenterology (GI)
Colonoscopies are one of the most common procedures performed by gastroenterologists. Problems with the digestive system, acid reflux, and heartburn - all more common as men age - can be treated by a gastroenterologist.

Internal medicine
Specialists in internal medicine play an important role in looking at the bigger picture of your overall health.

Our orthopedic physicians have you covered from prevention to diagnosis to treatment and rehabilitation, whether you’re a weekend warrior, casual gardener, or professional athlete.

Sexual dysfunction
While research suggests that sexual dysfunction is common, it is a topic many people are hesitant to discuss. Fortunately, most cases of sexual dysfunction are treatable.

Sleep disorders
An estimated 95 percent of Americans with sleep disorders go undiagnosed — and sleep apnea in men is often part of the same spectrum of conditions as erectile dysfunction.

Edward Karpman, MD and Patrick Wherry, MD serve as co-medical directors of the Men's Health Program.
